 :heeha: Very nicely done Louisa  :clap: :clap: :clap:   

I still have only half an elephant head back on the boat! Maybe having the pastels onboard will give me the push to finish it up.....if I can keep away from them!  :doh:       :2funny:

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Lovely elephant Louisa.  Seeing your output of all the beautiful paintings and drawings, makes me wish that I had more time on my hands but life is so busy. Anyway, it will settle down eventually.

it is better, but there is still a line joining up with the background. Move the bottom line that forms his knee down so that it staggers like this:

That will separate the two O0
